The Sea to Sky Gondola is anticipating a late spring or early summer reopening date, the company said in a January update on its website.
“The complicated clean-up process has been completed, and orders have been placed for new cable and 25 new cabins,” the company said. “The new cable is en route to Squamish while our cabin supplier, Swiss-based CWA, will be providing us with a timeline for delivery of the new cabins soon.”
The reopened gondola will have additional security measures that the company called “extraordinary in the lift industry.” It did not disclose details, citing security concerns after two incidents, just over a year apart, where the gondola line was cut. The first incident occurred in August 2019 and the second in September 2020.
As construction is in progress, the base area, parking lot, Sea to Sky Gondola gift shop, Basecamp Cafe, guest services, and Shannon Falls Connector Trail will all be closed from Jan. 18 to Jan. 28.
